I checked to see if it was compatible and it should be, but the fact is, the SSD is not recognized at all, not by windows 7, and not in the BIOS eather.
I swithche the Sata slots of cours, to see if it wasn't that kind of silly problems.. no.
I unpluged all the drives and tried to install windows on it like a brand news computer, still not recognized...
I updated the BIOS firmware, nothing.
I just recieved the ssd today, and I hope its something I forgot to check and not have to send it back to the customer service

@davcon > what do you call AHCI ? and Mobo ?
Sorry I'm quite new with BIOS stuff
AHCI stands for Advanced Host Controller Interface. It is helps the SSD to perform better if you install Windows after enabling AHCI. It does not matter if you changed the settings to AHCI or not for the SSD to be recognized. For me, I installed my SSD in IDE mode on accident and it was still recognized, then did another fresh install after changing settings to AHCI, so what I am guessing, is that it cannot be that.
And you are right, SATA3 drives are compatible with SATA2 controllers, they'll just not perform to their full potential.
Sounds like maybe a faulty SSD, as long as you have the SATA cable and power going to it it should at the very least show up in BIOS. I guess try messing with the SATA settings in your BIOS (IDE/ACHI/RAID, etc) and see if anything works. If not it might be a dead driver, I guess.
I'd definitely recommend you have a look in your motherboard's user manual and see if there's anything you/we might be overlooking.
